I know Washington is our pro bowler. What i was saying was bringing in another probowler. (which arrington is the only one left on the free agent market), but that would be stupid. I understand the SLB doesn't have to be that good. I was basically stating that someone will step up and everyone should really stop bashing this position. Holdman probably had an off year and learning a new system doesn't help. He probably should of signed with 2 years ago before he signed with Clevland. He would of been in alot better shape than he is now. After Holdman we are left with 3 guys who are unproven in the nfl to play that position. Somebody will step up and make plays. That is all i was basically saying.and people will still fear playing the Washington Defense.

Sorry, I didn't see that you were a new guy. Search "Question 3". My post was just a bit of a joke...

Re: Warrick Holdman

I thought Holdman had a so so season but Arrington was not much better. If you throw in what both were getting payed Arrington should have been the best D player in 05 but he wasn't. With a year under his belt I hope he will get his act together! I can see now that the 2nd round pick will be a CB,OL or a DL not a LB!

Re: Warrick Holdman

My best guess at the 2nd round pick (252 hours before the draft):

1. Linebacker
2. Offensive Line
3. Tight End
4. Defensive Tackle
5. Safety

Re: Warrick Holdman

Since he apparently signed for the vet minimum I think it was an okay move. To me there were times where he seemed so slow getting to the ball. Hopefully he'll produce when called upon. Still not overly optimistic about his production but we'll see.

Re: Warrick Holdman

Yeah, Holdman didn't make many spectacular plays but that's what Washington is for. For the vet minimum, we couldn't have done any better, especially since he's familiar with the scheme and played pretty good last year. Solid but not spectacular, he just fits and plays hard. And I think our d did pretty good with him in there last year for LA.

my guess (on what they'll do, not what i'd do) would be:

1. LB
2. CB
3. TE
4. OL
5. other

they've brought in a lot of high LBs and a few high CBs, one high TE and that's it so far... well, besides the scrubs.

Re: Warrick Holdman

I'd still grab a good CB if we get a shot at one. I've harped on this a lot, but I still think we're best suited by taking Springs' eventual replacement if a talented guy is on the board at #53.

Re: Warrick Holdman

I think their signings have really positioned themselves well. They can grab the best cb, lb, or dl available. I think that between clemons/ mccune/ holdman, a starter or solid platoon will emerge. Really, other than the WLB spot, we are just choosing for depth.

Re: Warrick Holdman

I'd have no problem going with a CB at #53, guess it all depends on who's available there.

I still think LB is the more immediate need and we're leaning that way just from the talk coming out of Redskins Park.

Re: Warrick Holdman

they've brought in:
LB: D'Qwell, T Howard, D Ryans, ?? (think i'm forgetting someone)
CB: A Cromartie, K Jennings, G Mcpherson (3rd round guy)
TE: Fasano

If they could trade down and get jon alston (smart/fast LB) and G Mcpherson (fast CB), I'd be pretty happy with that. getting a top tier OG would be great too.

Re: Warrick Holdman

Although Holdman was by no means great last year, his re-signing provides tremendous flexibility for the draft. We now at least have a veteran presence with starter capability, and if he shows significant improvement, we might even move Marshall back outside and have Holdman in the middle. With Clemons and Campbell in relief, McCune can effectively be groomed for the future.
LB is no longer a pressing need; we can concentrate on adding depth at any of the following positions: CB, S, TE, OT, LB, or DT. And we can also look at potential candidates to challenge for K and P. I think the Holdman signing as clearly added to our options.

Re: Warrick Holdman

Something else to consider (I'll probably draw a lot of fire for this): we might be able to trade down for a later second round pick or even into the third round to increase our prospects for next year's draft. I'm not saying it's a good idea, but it's just a thought. We are in fairly good shape with the team we have now, but I doubt our management wants to trade down any further.
